My sister is 35 yrs old (almost 36) and is due May 28, 2004. When I found out she was pregnant, over my belated bday dinner with her, my heart sank while I was overjoyed at the news. Lisa has a son who is now 10 1/2 and experienced toxemia with him. Because she is my sister (we are only 18 months apart) I was honest with her and told her I didn't want to scare her but she needs to be careful. It has been 10 yrs since she was pregnant, experienced a blood pressure related issue and is pregnant by another partner. I wouldn't want anything to happen to her or my soon to be NEICE (and godchild) [:)]. Lisa and her beau had genetic testing done and her doc also said due to her previous bp issues, he won't let her go over the due date. So far, she has been doing well and her b/p has been fine! As hard as it was for me to talk about my issue (and it was hard for her to tell me she was pregnant)...I had to tell her the truth and what to do for the next few months.
